Suggested Summer Reading

Multikulturelle Gruppe Kinder beim Lesen lernen

As the school year comes to an end we would like to wish everyone a happy and safe summer. We hope it is filled with lots of fun in the sun and relaxation. One of the best summer activities we can think of is to read a couple of good books. No pressure, just some fun reading! Thanks to the ALA and our local public libraries we have put together the best summer reading list.

On each list you will find a brief description of what your grades summer reading requirements are. You will also find call numbers for the books at either the Pasadena Central Library or the Altadena Main Branch. We also checked Glendale, San Marino and Monrovia, many of the books are available there too!

Just in case you are wondering…

Ms. Natalie ‘s rather long list of books she wants to read is:
The First Rule of Punk by Celia C. Perez
It All Comes Down to This by Karen English
Norse Myths: Tales of Odin, Thor and Loki by Kevin Crossley-Holland
In the Footsteps of Crazy Horse by Joseph Marshall
Rhythm Ride: A Road Trip Through the Motown Sound by Andrea David Pinkney
Clayton Byrd Goes Underground by Rita Williams-Garcia
Just Dance by Patricia MacLachlan
Older than Dirt: A Wild But True History of Earth by Don Brown
